The Nutrient Workhorse
Vitamin C is not just for colds! It can do so much more, and is an important nutrient needed for a variety of bodily functions. Vitamin C is essential in making collagen and connective tissue for healthy teeth, gums, skin, ligaments, and tendons. It’s also vital for cardiovascular health, supporting the adrenals during stress, and has been researched as an aid in fighting cancer.

Connecting It All Together
Vitamin C is a vital nutrient to keep you healthy all year long, involved in virtually every biochemical and biological reaction in your body. It works hard every minute to keep your body alive in addition to its immune supporting role.
Enerex Bio C 1000 provides an equal ratio of pure Vitamin C and its cohort Bioflavonoids in 500 mg potencies each. These two are better absorbed in the presence of each other and more effective when working together. We use the highest quality ingredients with the Bioflavonoids derived from citrus fruit and having a high 22% Hesperidin content.
Vitamin C doesn’t just fight Colds; it helps make Collagen and Connective tissue; it’s needed for healthy bodily responses during Chronic stress; it’s vital for Cardiovascular health; and it has been researched as an aid in fighting Cancer.
The list of its daily duties is long. Here are just some of the health benefits Vitamin C provides:
- Tissue formation: Vitamin C manufactures collagen, the most important protein in the human body that is needed for healthy skin, bone, teeth, gums, connective tissue, tendons and cartilage.
- Stress reduction: The greatest concentration of Vitamin C is in our adrenal glands, where it’s used to produce the stress response hormones adrenaline, cortisol and histamine. Vitamin C is essential to handle stress.
- Anti-aging: Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, protecting cells against the destructive effects of free radicals.
- Cancer: Vitamin C may stimulate the activities of natural killer cells (a type of white blood cell) and anti-cancer agents. Low blood levels of Vitamin C have been correlated with a greater risk of having certain forms of cancer.
- Osteoporosis: Vitamin C may help to prevent bone loss by reducing the “break-down” activity of the cells that removes calcium from bones. It also helps the body to absorb calcium from foods, which aids in bone development.
- Cardiovascular health: Vitamin C, in combination with Vitamin E, raises HDL (good) and lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol, reduces plaque formation, helps lower high blood pressure, and lowers heart disease risk.
- Immune function: Vitamin C stimulates lymphocytes (immune cells that fight infection and disease) and increases other types of white blood cells, which may enhance the immune system’s effectiveness.
Bioflavonoids – Hesperidin, Quercitin, Naringin and Rutin – are needed for the body to absorb and use Vitamin C. In research, Ascorbic Acid by itself does not have the same benefits that it does with co-factor nutrients including Rutin, “Vitamin P” and other Bioflavonoids. (For example, Ascorbic Acid, which is the only ingredient in many Vitamin C supplements, does not even prevent scurvy when used by itself, according to studies.)
They offer antioxidant protection especially for the heart and circulatory system and may help strengthen the immune system, protect the liver, help protect blood vessels from rupture or leakage, and prevent excessive inflammation throughout the body. The bioavailability of Bioflavonoids is increased when Vitamin C is present.
Enerex Bio C 1000 offers a 1:1 ratio of Vitamin C and its absorption-helper nutrients called Bioflavonoids to make these nutrients work most effectively, and help your body gain the full power of Vitamin C. There is 500 mg of each provided in every dose (combining Ascorbic Acid and citrus fruit Bioflavonoids) to total 1000 mg.
Are you getting enough?
Stress, smoking, eating excessive sugar, exposure to UV rays, and certain pharmaceuticals (cortisone, tetracycline, birth control pill, aspirin) impact Vitamin C levels in the body. Studies have shown that people under chronic psychological or physical stress have lower levels of Vitamin C since stress increases Vitamin C excretion. Health Canada has set the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C at a maximum 2000 milligrams. In data from NHANES*, a nation-wide study done from 2003 through 2006, the population surveyed ate only 37% of the recommended daily amount of Vitamin C in total from all food sources (excluding supplements).
The Enerex Advantage
Enerex Bio C 1000 contains the highest quality ingredients available: "C99" Vitamin C and "22% Hesperidin" (as measured by High Pressure Liquid Chromatography) Bioflavanoids. These quality markers place this immune product above other supplements. BIO C 1000 tablets contain 500 mg of Vitamin C plus 500 mg of citrus Bioflavonoids; this equal ratio is solidly based upon published peer-reviewed human studies showing this to be the optimal approach.
Many products that contain Bioflavonoids use a less costly and less effective form. The only way to determine the quality in a formula is to see if the label indicates the amount of Hesperidin present. If no claim is made for the Hesperidin content, then the product is less likely to contain the higher grade.
